    It is with great sadness that I note that another Arkansas caller has
    gone on to "The Eternal Square".

    Bill Strawn, caller for both the 60's Swingers and the Maverick
    Mixers, passed away early Sunday morning at his home.

    From what I understand, the funeral is Thursday, but due to health and
    other issues, I likely will just sign the online guest book.

    Both clubs are working to try to find replacement callers, but there
    aren't any callers in the Little Rock area anymore, and there are less
    than 20 clubs in the state now.

    It is with deep regret that I announce the passing of Ken Talley of
    Little Rock. He and his wife Deanie, were one time officers of the
    Arkansas State Square Dance Federation...and also officers and contacts
    for the now disbanded Rebel Reelers Club in Conway. Both of them also
    ran Southwest Engravers, which made badges for square dancing, and other entities.

    Ken sustained a severe head injury from a fall at his home in late
    June, and his widow decided to "pull the plug on life support" yesterday morning...not long after that, Ken had gone on to be with The Lord.

    I don't know of funeral arrangements at this time, but they probably
    will be announced in the next day or two.

    Our condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the Talley family.
